NFL Week 1

#1

New season, new board, new… no, just those two. Plenty to be going on with really.

Week 1 kicks off tomorrow night with a replay of the Superbowl. Denver won despite fielding a cardboard cutout of Peyton Manning, so they’ll probably be fine with… checks previews … Trevor Simian? So some sort of trained monkey, ought to be good.

I’d look at some other games too, but I think I’ll just get this going and see what happens first.


#2

Fantasy draft tonight, hope it goes better than my first one last Sunday. Thought I’d picked up Cam in the second round so ended up picking 3 WRs with my first three picks :confused:


#3

Take it to the non-existent fantasy thread mate.

3 WRs in the first three rounds is the fashionable way to do things these days. I’m still stuck in my RB-early ways, personally. Can’t wait for RedZone on a Sunday night again for fantasy goodness.


#4

That’s my gag! From the forthcoming Roughing the Passer column on brusma’s blog.

Where is brusma?


#5

It is a very fine gag, I’m sure everyone will enjoy seeing it again.

brusma (or at the very least someone using the brusma username) is knocking about somewhere.


#6

So, opening day is finally here! Let’s all get billy big bollocks and make a prediction for tonight’s game:

I think it will be a cagey, slightly ropy game, both defences will be good, so low scoring, but ultimately Cam is the much better QB and he’ll clinch a win.

Panthers 17 - 14 Broncos


#7

Untried round 7 QB against the Panthers D - I fancy there could be problems for the monkey-man. As they always say, revenge is a dish that doesn’t get rid of the taste of Superbowl defeat but in all other respects is… a very good dish in the circumstances. Panthers 27 - Broncos 10


#8

Off work so I’ll be staying up for it. Panthers blowout, bed at halftime


#9

Absolutely no way I’m staying up for it, but Panthers to win by at least 7… I’m thinking 21-9 or something.

(a LOT of Winston love from Rosenthal on ATN today, incidentally)


#10

Going full homer and backing the broncos to win wooooooo :racehorse:

#12

what time is it on? where can I watch it online without having to :dollar:


#13

Tebow signs with New York! Sort of! Some practice team for the Mets. What an absolute circus that man is, he hasn’t started a game in the NFL since 2012 and he’s still news somehow. Even made the BBC Sport website.


#14

Have we all seen that Jon Dorenbos (the Eagles long snapper for all you part timers) is into the final of America’s Got Talent as a magician/bro Derren Brown? What other good extra-curricular (and non-criminal) pastimes are there? So far I’ve got:

Malcolm Mitchell (WR, Patriots) - Children’s author
Jon Urschel (C, Ravens) - Maths guy
Chris Conley (WR, Chiefs) - Star Wars fanfilm maker (and here it is)
Gary Barnidge (King of Universe, Cleveland) - Film blogger (sadly not updated for a while)


#15

Not quite a full-time other pursuit, but I feel like DeAndre Levy’s essay went very under the radar, and I’ll be very interested to see what he does when he leaves football:


#16

Doesn’t start till 1.30am, will be on any site you find via searching “sports streaming” or similar.


#17

goatd.net is really reliable for US sport streams (I’ll be up if you wanna livechat the fuck out of it)


#18

ooh thx!

I won’t be able to watch the whole thing because I have to be up earlyish, but first quarter at least…


#19

What’s the survivor league name/password


#20

football!
